This is a wonderful museum which describes in exquisite detail a battle that changed the world. Coincidentally the story is told in a Netflix series named “The Roman Empire” ( Season 2; Episodes 1-3). Basically Caesar, w/o Rome’s permission, had conquered about 1/3 of Gaul...More

Excellent musuem in the rolling French countryside. The musuem is not massive but is very interactive and does a great job in explaining the importance and impact of this major Roman victory. The outside exhibit of the siege walls lends a complete understanding of the...More

Great site - Very well done museum with fantastic audio tour. Live demonstrations outside. Gives contextual understanding of how the Gaulish attempts to repel the Romans fit into the broader narrative of growth of Rome as well as explaining the siege very well. Joe

The battle between the Gauls and the romans took place in 52 B.C. there are a lot of ruins and if you can imagine what it was like then its magical. The museum is worth going to as well.
